You know how when you eat asparagus especially, your pee will smell odd.
Well, something similar to that has been going on for a while now. I started paleo about 5 weeks ago. I'd say I'm about 90% strict. As far as my actual meals go I'm 100% paleo aside from frying my food in peanut oil (economic), lightly, and eating peanut butter, or some cheese on my eggs.
I'll taste food that other people are having if they offer and if I actually want it, but for the most part, I'm paleo. It feels great, I'm looking better than I have, my training is great. I'm recovering fast. I feel healthy, fit, focused.
But, my pee smells odd.
What does this mean? What is ketosis and does that have something to do with it?
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
-- Main Diet: Lots of beef and chicken, some pork, plenty of eggs. Lots of raw veggies (romaine, onions, peppers, sweet potatoes, garlic, tomatoes, zucchini, cucumber) and cooked (same). Good fats (nuts, olives).

How many carbs are you eating? Are you sure that you're not in ketosis? That makes my urine smell like tramps piss (not that I have any personal experience of smelling tramps piss).
